This page maintains a list of missing pieces to turn the web into a proper OS.

  • Offline (tentative solution: service workers)
  • Payments (tentative solution: requestAutocomplete())
  • Camera (requires improved getUserMedia(); see Mediastream Image Capture)
  • Disk access for photos and music (requires much improved <input type=file>, ability to scan directories, return files of certain type)
  • Storage (see Storage, StorageDurability)

These are sometimes suggested as requirements, but are less convincing:

  • Contacts (tentative solution: use the "cloud")
  • "systemXHR" (no CORS, no opaque responses; tentative solution: proxy or use the "cloud")
  • TCP (tentative solution: proxy or use the "cloud")
